    Midgard Campaign Setting: Anyone have an Opinion?

    To the OP: I wrote up two detailed Let's Reads for the Midgard Worldbook and the Southlands sister setting. In short, I'm a big fan of both and ran games in both. It is a really cool and neat world which gives novel spins on classic concepts while also delving into new territory. You...

    A Contrast of Fantasy Africana D&D Settings

    It does not seem to be. I believe that the crowdfunded project only provided for physical copies. There was apparently a PDF on Drive-Thru RPG, but it has since become a "not available" title.

    A Contrast of Fantasy Africana D&D Settings

    Allandaros touched upon some good examples, but there's also Aurion: Legacy of the Kori-Odan. It's not D&D and actually a video game, but it was designed by a studio in Cameroon. It's a hybrid fighting-RPG style of gameplay.

    A Contrast of Fantasy Africana D&D Settings

    So something of interest. Southlands just became a Gold Best Seller on Drive-Thru RPG. Granted, it was at Electrum (the step below Gold) for years, so it likely recently hit the required threshold. But it looks to be a very popular setting, in line with Kobold Press' other works. Spears of the...

    [any edition] What official races had the most lop-sided ability modifiers?

    I'm interested in what TSR/WotC products contained playable races with the most extreme ability scores bonuses and penalties. Or the smallest maximums/highest minimums in the case of AD&D. This is more out of curiosity; 3rd party products are renowned for their lack of balanced options, but I'm...

    [VtM] Which sourcebook listed Caine's stats as "you lose?"

    I read this on another site as a very brief description of how to handle chronicles which had the progenitor of vampires show up. Which sourcebook said this?

    A Contrast of Fantasy Africana D&D Settings

    A big Content Warning for discussion of sexual assault and pedophilia, among other things. Quite a bit, actually. I should note that a good portion is inoffensive overviews of local history, customs, religions, and such. But the material that's bad kept popping up that they couldn't be brushed...

    A Contrast of Fantasy Africana D&D Settings

    I was going off what has already been published at the moment, but doh! I should have mentioned that.

    A Contrast of Fantasy Africana D&D Settings

    Hello everyone. I just recently completed a Let's Read of Nyambe: African Adventures here in this very forum. But it was not the only product of its kind that I reviewed. Last year I reviewed Southlands, and I first reviewed Spears of the Dawn nearly half a decade before that. When rereading...

    Thank you for your compliments and your interest! Unfortunately various other pressures on my time now will prevent me from checking it out. I do wish you the best of luck in your setting project! :)

    [Let's Read] Nyambe: African Adventures

    Funny you should mention that; I won't review it just yet, but I am reading Svimohzia: the Ancient Isle, and while it does have some good ideas it's definitely darker and edgier than Nyambe/Spears of the Dawn/Southlands: the country sections of the noble houses and wars read like the most...

    [Let's Read] Nyambe: African Adventures

    New Animals & Vermin This section is light on new artwork, unsurprisingly. A lot of the new animals are for stats of existing real-world creatures or altered versions of corebook ones. Thus our “new” animals and vermin include the following: the war camel is a stronger version of the standard...

    [Let's Read] Nyambe: African Adventures

    We got plenty of lions and a few imported baers, but no tigers! The final chapter is by far the longest, taking up 25% of the book’s content with nearly 60 new monsters, all but a few with their own artwork. For obvious reasons I’m not going to go in-depth on specific monster types, but will...

    [Let's Read] Nyambe: African Adventures

    If Feats are the First Estate of D20 supplements, then New Magic Items would be the Second, with monsters a close Third. And hoo boy do we have a lot of new trinkets, artifacts, concoctions, and all things supernatural! Magic Armor is actually just as common in Nyambe-tanda as it is in other...

    [Let's Read] Nyambe: African Adventures

    This is the Miscellaneous GM’s Section of the book, a collection of material which doesn’t fit in the other chapters. On a similar note the artwork here feels like placeholders, few of which is directly relevant to the adjoining text. The majority of content focuses on new adventure hooks and...
